We're all well acquainted with the majesty of an expertly executed own goal in football, but now it seems other sports are getting in on the act too.

We can safely say that we've never seen this before in basketball, but James Young of college team Kentucky Wildcats managed to net a sensational score in his own hoop in a match against Montevallo.
